Your Monthly Update & Lifestyle Roundup | August 2022

How is it August already? This summer has flown by. Everyone I know is busy with back-to-school and dorm preparations, last-ditch escapes to higher elevations and generally trying to make it through to fall or at least the next cool front that drops us to the 90s. Is that you, too? As for me, I’m staying on top of the local real estate market to ensure I advise my clients well on any and every aspect of a purchase or sale. And as always, I’m taking advantage of my company’s continuing education opportunities and important industry updates offered by our in-house mortgage, title and insurance providers. There is still activity as the inventory situation continues to improve, so if you have been watching and waiting for a “sign,” I’d be glad to tell you what to look for. Please reach out and let’s chat. Until then, stay cool and hydrated, my friends!
